Custom orders available starting July 20th

This year we have a large selection of fresh herbs. This includes rosemary, thyme, parsley, sage, dill, basil, chives, cilantro, oregano (tons of tasty oregano this year so if you’ve never tasted it in salads, with eggs or to top off a dinner delight, consider adding this tasty addition to perk up a meal), peppermint and lots of lavender too.

Is garlic a taste you savor? We planted five different varieties of both softneck and hardneck garlic. Ever tried it fresh? It’s delightful! Put in your orders for next year if fresh is your preference as we just pulled up the last of it so it’s dried for the rest of 2017. Ever had garlic scapes? We offer them too but they’re only available for about three weeks in May-June and go very fast so pre-orders are a must on these (get in line for 2018).

If you love potatoes but are looking to reduce starch, surprise your guests with our Adirondack Blues that are purple all the way through or our reds that are so tender and sweet you won’t need to add condiments to enjoy the flavor and texture. These are dug up fresh for a taste you won’t recognize if all you’ve had before is store bought.

While we do have tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and other standard fare, this year we’re trying to offer what most others don’t. Items like fresh carrots, turnips, beets, red cabbage, bok choy, leeks, Brussels sprout and spaghetti squash that is so delicious you won’t miss pasta ever again.

We’ll be planting for fall soon so if there’s something special you seek, let us know and we’ll try to plant it for you. This is sure to include loose leaf and romaine lettuce, fresh peas (one of my favorites to eat like popcorn) and kohlrabi, but if there’s something you like and we can fit it in, we’ll give a shot and let you know if it grows.

We deliver to individuals and businesses in Roanoke City and South County. .

Isn’t summer wonderful in western Virginia?

Nanette Levin learned the produce practices she uses mostly the hard way over 20 years of experimentation. Hopefully you'll consider this site one of the many good resources that have cropped up to help you avoid mistakes as a new gardener or a more experienced one shifting to chemical-free solutions. There's a lot of free information (concerning plants and horses), but we also offer consultative support for those seeking customized attention.
